Main Street Picayune MS


Picayune Main Street, Inc. Mission is to enhance our community and encourage investment in Picayune MS through Downtown Revitization & Beautification Projects.

Committed to the belief that “Community Development precedes Economic Development”, the Main Street Association of Picayune, MS remains a driving force behind the booming economy of our Downtown District.

Through Partnership Sponsors, Fundraisers  & Grants, we have changed our aesthetic from barren and derelict to colorful, usable, exciting, and Instagram worthy through facade grants for storefront improvements, creation of murals by local artists on once barren walls, and the full transformation of two alleys into vibrant public spaces.

 Our semi-annual Street Festivals see our population more than double. Shop by Candlelight and Christmas on the Rails are staples of the holiday season, while  music events and sidewalk sales keep our downtown bustling year-round. Headline music events and a gumbo cookoff, benefitted the creation of a new state of the art playground that is the second largest in the state.

While we focus our attention and resources in the heart of the city, our events and projects have a positive effect on Picayune and Pearl River County.
